Re: [v081] not posible to show implementations of "generic" blocks

I've reproduced this bug. Should be easy to fix.

Workaround: After you know the internal name of the block (e.g. "self_getX" for the "x position" block, search for it using the "find system block matching..." command from the right-click menu on the title bar of a System Browser.

Version 81

Version v081 of GP is now available from http://gpblocks.org/versions/GP.zip This version fixes several issues arising from out-of-order and duplicated key-down events reported by the Gnome3 Linux desktop. Symptoms included doubled arrow key responses in text input fields and problems with the "find...

Re: Export as App for other Platforms?

Yes, I agree, that would be really cool! It should be possible, but it might be a while before I get to it. Meanwhile, a workaround is to open the project in GP and "export as app" on each platform. You'd probably want to verify that you app actually runs on that platform anyhow, right? P.S. In case...

Re: [Linux] GP creates its own documents folder for the "GP" folder

GP currently has the "Documents" folder name hard-coded. Does anyone know if there a standard Linux API for getting the path the the Documents folder? (There is on Windows and Mac OS.) On Linux, it sounds like it might be better to always create the "GP" folder as subdirectory of the user's home dir...

Re: [Linux] search box for blocks doesn't work

This isn't actually a bug in GP. The problem arises from duplicated and out-of-order keyboard events on a few specific Linux desktops, which is why it only shows up on a few Linux systems. The Gnome desktop seems to be a common factor, but other desktops could also have this issue. I added workaroun...

Re: [Linux] problems with several linux desktop environments

Until now, I've not found any useful things depending on gnome with doubled key-down or extra backspace events issues. Could it possibly be a problem with your "hard-coded" key input event handler or something simular? Thanks for looking. I can't rule out a bug in the low-level GP code, but it sure...

Re: [Linux] problems with several linux desktop environments

I've tracked down the issue. The problem (at least on Ubuntu 17.10 with the Gnome desktop) is that the SDL2 is reporting multiple key-down events for certain keys like the arrow keys. It also seems to randomly report backspace events, which is what is causing the find box to behave strangely. This i...

Re: [Linux] problems with several linux desktop environments

I've reproduced the problems using the Ubuntu 17.10 download link you sent. The search box problem is strange. Sometimes I can type "mov" and it gets all three letters, but sometimes the first two letters disappear when I type the "v". I haven't yet dug into what events GP is getting but it's great ...

Re: [Linux] problems with several linux desktop environments

Ubuntu 17.10.1 amd64: https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/thank-you?version=17.10.1&architecture=amd64 Thanks! Since Ubuntu 17.x it does not use the Unity desktop anymore. Its standard desktop is Gnome3. What's interesting is that Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 seems to work okay for me. So something chang...
